I've been making some Final Fantasy amigurumi lately, and thought you might enjoy seeing them.

First up, a baby chocobo! The eyes aren't as cute as the model from the pattern, but I didn't have any felt so I worked with what I had. Still pretty pleased with the results.

Next up, a Cactuar that still needs a face. I'll get to that in the next few days:

Then we have a Mandragora. I first encountered this model in FFXI, but they show up in XII and XIV as well.

Here's a Tonberry, ready to knife you. Doink!

And finally, my favorite, a Moogle. I'm especially pleased with how his face came out. Yeah, I know his wings are supposed to be purple but I didn't have any purple yarn, so I used navy blue instead. Eventually I'll correct it, but I'm really pleased with how it is so far.

Very impressive! I think my favourite is the Tonberry. He even has his little knife!

Yeah, I'm with Cefca. I get why you're fond of the Moogle, he's really excellent too, but that Tonberry rocks it. In the style, his cloak turns into an adorable little hooded sweater. biggrin.gif

Thanks for the compliments! I can see why the Tonberry is popular. He's my second favorite of the group. A friend on another site said that this pattern makes him look friendly, LOL. I was just happy to find a free pattern, as the one I had originally queued was a paid pattern and I don't have money to spend right now.

Here's the patterns I used, in case anyone else wants to make one.

Baby Chocobo pattern
Moogle pattern
Tonberry pattern
Mandragora pattern

I made another amigurumi! This is Olive from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. She's my strongest unit with over 1000 attack, and I just love her to pieces so I had to make her.

Hi Althea! Thanks for pointing me to this thread from another one. You've done some great work.

I have done a lot of amigurumi, but none for final fantasy, which is odd considering the possibilities.

If you don't mind, though, I'd like to share a photo of a Baby Groot that I made:

Also, a random bat, which is one of my favs:

Your Baby Groot is very good, and I love your bat! wub.gif Bats are one of my favorite animals.

I finished Rain and Lasswell from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius yesterday! I'm pretty pleased with how they turned out. Their bodies are crocheted in one piece, which I'll definitely do again as it's much easier than sewing limbs on. Their clothes are knitted. I basically took adult sized clothing patterns and scaled them way down.

I'm not familiar with Final Fantasy Brave Exvius and the characters, but the ones you made look very good smile.gif

I haven't been around the forums much lately because I've been busy (I missed most of the Regalia voting cry.gif ). One of the things that kept me busy was more Final Fantasy crafting! Here's my latest.

First up is Rinoa! I have an acquaintance who has admired my other amigurumi, but lamented that she couldn't make them herself because she didn't know how to crochet. "Challenge accepted!" I thought to myself, and swore my next one would be entirely knitted. I made Rinoa completely from scratch, using techniques I've picked up from other patterns. I'm tickled that my nefarious plans actually worked out! Rinoa's not perfect - I don't like her hair and she came out cock-eyed because I placed the eyes before stuffing the head - but I'm still really pleased with her!

I made a Red Mage square! It's double-wides, with a negative image on the back.

Here is White Knight Noel from Final Fantasy Brave Exvius. I made him for FFBE's Best Holiday Greetings contest, and I am pleased to say he's a finalist. I'm not getting many votes, alas, so I won't win the contest, but at least I get 500 lapis for making the top 20!

Finally, I turned the CoN logo into a double-sided hotpad!

I was about to comment on how cute all of these were and then I saw the CoN logo one. Pandering to the audience will get you everywhere.
